Was up at Logue's Farm today and saw birds flying around in a what can be
described as an open area with shrubs and small trees that was surrounded
in the distance by thicker and taller vegetation.
The bird was black and orange/red - either a redstart or oriole. My first
impression was warbler! But it seemed too small to be an oriole - it was a
little bigger than a sparrow but no where near a robin size.
Are redstarts found in an environment like that or was it an oriole? Are
redstarts found in places other than woods?
I saw them on the road across from the barn and pond where I saw the wood
ducks and solitary sandpiper a week or so ago.
